Greece General: 654 reviews and 611 photos

Favorite thing: Athens has been (mythologie) at war with Creta. Although the war was over, Minos (king of Creta), ruled the seas and Athens had to play an awful tribute as a condition for peace. Minos saught revenge for the death of his son and demamded that every nine years the Athenians send him fourteen of their children - 7 girls and 7 boys. Once in Creta, the young and woman were send into the maze like labyrinth to face the deatdly Minotaur who was half man, half bull.
